    Default BGS helm and items

    Hi all
    Just received my newest acquisition... its a BGS M53 (M35 style) bought it off eBay but the photos only showed the outside..so I was made up when it arrived with nice soldier named markings, Ralf Becker, R.B. !!! I've added a genuine BGS opfor reversible (yellow, red) band, an unissued BGS thick "cargo" Tarn net and a BGS sumpftarn parka hood as a camo cover. I have some BGS ammo pouches, belt and a "Y" strap somewhere and will post em up when I find them!!

    Very nice all original looking Helmet, the cover and netting look's particularly effective too, I sold one of these models last year and am now regretting it as they are fairly scarce

    I like the way the BGS helmet looks with the thick green netting over the camo cover

    the photo shows a group of BGS with the same type of nets on their helmets during training in the field

    The BGS did use German WWII shells like the M42 and added new paint & liners before they made the post war BGS helmets.

    TR era M42 shell that had the 3 liner retaining holes welded shut and a post war liner added [photos from another forum]
